  • @Ankit, judging by what they said as reason for refusal I would say the main problem is that you have failed to prove you have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay in Spain - you need to send proof of the money in your bank accounts…
  • Most Florida holidays are planned around a city or a region of the state - I can be more specific about fun attractions and safety etc if you ask about particular cities, but for an overview of the most popular places to visit in Florida check out t…
  • @jesvin, luckily the most passport validity any country requires is six months so you should be just fine. Indian citizens require three months of passport validity for a three-month stay in the UAE and six months validity for a visit exceeding thre…
  • Hi Shankar, Could you give us a bit more detail? Are all the trekking routes open in Nepal? And are there any areas that should still be avoided?
  • Your daughter will be labelled as 'undesirable' and will probably be banned from re-entering South Africa for anything between two and 10 years depending on the circumstances. She will also be fined, though I cannot tell you the exact amount... What…
  • As a woman from India you are probably prepared for the situation in Ethiopia. Bahir Dar is one of the country's tourism hubs and is comparatively safe. The problem areas in Ethiopia are mainly the borders. There are no travel alerts for the region …
  • Thanks for that useful update Clare.
  • Alethia is right @sm465, you need to apply in India before you travel to the Netherlands.
  • Check out this longer (7 page!) thread on this issue: http://forum.wordtravels.com/discussion/3911/i-was-deported-from-korea/p1 As you will see it is impossible for us to predict how long any individual may have been banned for. Only Korean Immigrat…
  • December is winter in Turkey and outside of the main tourist season. The most popular months to visit are July to September. The coastal resorts will mostly be closed in December and Cappadocia will be very cold, but Istanbul really can be visited a…
  • @meflmb@gmail.com I'm afraid there's not much we can do to help you. All we can do is tell you what the law is and give you advice about how to proceed - we can't change the law. You clearly know the legal situation and you don't want advice on how …
  • Vaccinations are recommended for hepatitis A, hepatitis B and typhoid. The only required vaccination is yellow fever, and only for those arriving from infected areas. Malaria is an issue only at areas with an altitude less than 1800 metres... most t…
  • Ah I see why you're confused. People applying for Schengen visas are supposed to apply at either the first Schengen country they will be entering or the country they will be staying in for the most time. However, in practice, once the visa has been …
  • You can visit Italy and/or Spain for as many days as you like within the period that your visa is valid. You have 90 days to spend wherever you want in the Schengen zone. As your visa is multiple entry you can also leave the zone and return so long …
  • aanastacio, check out this lengthy thread on deportation and banning issues in South Korea: http://forum.wordtravels.com/discussion/3911/i-was-deported-from-korea/p1 Unfortunately it is impossible for us to give you a concrete answer about how long …
  • Hi Affeur, I see your problem with the early rising - though most toddlers I know have the opposite problem! I'm afraid I can't recommend any particular resorts or resort areas as I haven't been to the coast. Hopefully somebody else will be along to…
  • Hi SallyG, I have never been to Sweden but the general consensus is that the mild summer months of June, July and August are the best time to visit. July is the peak tourist season so perhaps avoid that month if you don't want crowds. Luckily, howev…
  • Hi affeur, I'm jealous! I would recommend Cappadocia as a good Turkey destination. The hot air ballooning over that weird, ancient landscape is magical and I'm sure your toddler will enjoy exploring the caves. Possibly a coastal destination as the t…
  • Hi Erma, You will need a passport valid at least for the duration of your stay in the UK, and a visa to enter the UK (of which Scotland is a part). You will have to apply at the UK Embassy nearest where you live.
  • Technically one is supposed to apply for a Schengen visa through either the country one is entering first or spending the most time in, but I have never heard of this being enforced and it is pretty common for travellers to change their plans. You s…
  • As Alethia said in the above post, once a Schengen visa is granted it allows entry to all Schengen countries, regardless of which country issued it. So yes, you can visit France with a Schengen visa issued by Spain.
  • If you never even got past immigration I can't see how you could have been banned from the country, but not knowing the reason you didn't get in last time makes it very difficult to speculate on whether you'll get in if you try again. Sorry, this is…
  • @senior2020 do you know why you were refused entry and deported in the first place?
  • @Alizaidi, if you are issued a Schengen visa you can travel to any country within the Schengen zone, regardless of which country issued the visa. So yes, if Spain grants you a visa you can also travel to Portugal. However, it sounds like you need to…
  • I'm afraid it's difficult for anybody here to answer your question. Different embassies have different waiting periods for visas. They usually advise you on how much time it will take when you make your application. It can be anything from days to w…
  • Hi there, South Africans do need visas for Mali but they can usually be issued on arrival, especially if you have an invitation. Your only option if you've started having hassles is to contact the nearest Mali embassy and find out from them what you…
  • As I said above, if a visa is granted by any Schengen country you can travel freely in the whole Schengen zone. There are no borders. Your visa may be checked at airports but a Schengen visa entitles you to travel to any Schengen country no matter w…
  • Naufal, if you are granted a Schengen visa you are entitled to travel to any of the Schengen countries within the period the visa is valid, regardless of which country issued the visa. You are meant to apply at the country you will be entering first…
  • @hud, I'm afraid every aspect of this story is a signature romance scam. You don't need confirmation that the name is fake to know this is all lies. Cut ties immediately.
  • Hi Lajos, I don't have any experience of airbnb in India specifically, but I can tell you that it is a wonderful resource for the budget traveller. Often you can find very reasonably priced options and stay in much more comfort than you would in a b…
